ever wondered what would the movie look like if there were no superheroes saving the day but supervillains going ape-sh!t crazy in their own movie franchise?
yeah i totally think about that each and every time!
i am a huge fan of movies with anti-heroes and villains as lead characters in them! what i would love to see in a supervillain movie is how these characters plan to destroy some random town or the whole planet!
just imagine how dark and how thrilling the movie would be!
we could just put one random awesome character and make him/her play the part! or we could put a battle between two villains about "who gets to punch the good dude first!"
So, here are my top 10 comic book villains who could be awesome lead characters in their own solo movies:
Two-face would be interesting as hell in a solo movie! just don't let the directors make it all Tommy-lee Jones and we will get an awesome identity disordered villain in the theaters!
the actor i would pick would be Guy Pearce. just imagine how crazy and dark he could get! the origin story of how harvey dent became two face, the depth about his relations with everyone close to him, etc would be just awesome to watch.
yeah!! Mystique has always been my favorite villain, she really needs a solo movie, all about herself, how she became an assassin, her relations with magneto and the professor would be awesome to watch!
what i would like to see in a mystique movie would be the "going crazy after trying to fit in" thing! Jennifer Lawrence could continue her role for this one!
Send Ra's Al Ghul's people to hunt him down, and then have deathstroke find Al Ghul and catch him by his fancy suit and say , "your dead!" and then bring in damian wayne and have them battle!! oh god this would be crazy as hell!
Sean Bean would be my pick for the character!
7. Vandal Savage:
this one would be brilliant! let him have a power struggle with Lex Luthor!
have Cristian Bale or Gerard Butler play Savage and Ralph fiennes could easily play Lex Luthor! Gerard Butler and Ralph Fiennes could easily make the movie epic, remember "Coriolanus" , well i loved that movie, just dont turn Savage's movie into a musical film! this could be Lex luthor v. Savage the "Coriolanus" way!
or we could even see Cristian Bale as Savage, rule some fictional country, be all despotic and have the people revolt against him, we could watch a revolution story! that would be epic!
6. Mr. Sinister:
Yeah now this could mean a lot for super-villain fans out there. i would choose Ralph fiennes for the role, dont give the guy those shredded cape thingy, put him in a suit, and probably we could follow the story where sinister predicts his own death, well let's kill him at the story's beginning, and then let's resurrect him into "miss sinister". and well we could bring mister sinister's soul back again and then he could guide miss sinister in doing things super-villains usually do! i would love to see Emma Stone play the character of miss sinister, let her be all innocent at first and after fiennes's mr. sinister teaches her the ways of being evil, she brings havoc!
why not?? who would not want to watch venom go head on with carnage?? but i want to see venom as the lead in it. I think it would be awesome if Mary Jane could be Venom in this movie, make this movie a super-villain horror flick! make it scary as hell!!
we need a bad-ass Mary Jane for this one so Jaimie Alexander could quit Thor and play Mary Jane aka Venom for this movie!!
or a crazier idea would be having marvel and DC plan a movie together and create a venom and superman crossover. not superman v. venom, but superman AS venom!! this would be more awesome than any other super-people movie combined!!!!!!!! i would be a nice kid god, please make this possible!!
4. Black Adam:
let's see how Black Adam's origin story catches your attention! i would love to see Adam's powers be shown in its highest potential. we could even have a spin off of Shazam right after Adam's movie! we need to see how the Egyptian prince becomes Black Adam and let's not paint shazam's character all over the movie! Shazam could come up at the end of the movie, probably in the post-credits and then BOOM in the sequel let's have an epic fight between those two!
My pick for Black Adam would be Djimon Hounsou! i would not want to see Dwayne Johnson as Adam, never!!!! and Shazam could be played by Til Schweiger from Inglorious Basterds!
this could be awesometastic right!! who wouldnt love to see the God of Mischief being all mischievous? we could see Loki casting spells over some superheroes and making them fight each other, Hulk and Thor would be great! and after Hulk and Thor come back to their senses Loki could run and hide somewhere and have a good hearty laugh! and who else would fit right for the role than Tom Hiddleston!!
Now do not get me wrong here! i was thinking about placing Bizarro here but then i got this crazy idea! what if superman goes mad?? what if he goes all crazy and tries to destroy the world?? Let's have a face-off between batman and superman where superman goes crazy and batman can do nothing at all. let's see how that would turn out. i would love to see the "dawn of justice"'s story change into this. let's do that. lets cut all those TOO many characters and lets see this happen. i would love to watch this in the theater.
i liked Henry Cavill's portrayal of Superman and i loved man of steel!! But in this "superman going crazy" movie i would love to see Joaquin Phoenix with some muscles, and i kinda like the idea of Ben Affleck turning batman!!
i was thinking about keeping superman here but i thought who could even win over Joker as a super-villain!!
Joker is the greatest villain there is and will ever be!!!! just give him any story, any god damned story!!!!!!!!!
do you remember that scene in the dark knight where Joker offers to kill Batman for half their money, but the mob bosses refuse, and Gambol puts a bounty on him, and then joker kills him. well i would like to see that as the major plot for this movie! have Gambol's hunters hunt Joker here, and let Joker play his part being all crazy and killing these "other" villains!
and oh yes as i mentioned in my 1st article, i would love to see Michael Pitt (Mason Verger in Hannibal TV series) as the clown prince of crime!!
so let me know what super-villain character you would like to see as lead in a villainous movie!!
